my moms classmates got polio from the shot.
i'm not getting any of it, never have and never will. Thank God my mom had the sense to say no to that stuff! I tried that with my son and his mother had him vaxxed anyway, At least my son declined this last thing. He was the last person at his work to get the coof and and the only one that was not jabbed and he hat the least amount of time out sick.

Maybe if they soaked the vaccine into sugar cubes like they enticed us with when I was in elementary school. Get out of class work, plus get a sugar cube,.... there was almost a stampede to the nurse's office.

I don't remember hearing about any problems with the vaccine they were using back in the 1950's and 60's. Maybe they knew how to test it first, rather than let the general public be the lab rats? :roll:

There was a screw up with a batch of polio vaccine in the early stages. After that it eradicated polio. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1383764/

A friend of mine is 96 and his right arm is contorted from having contracted polio at 15. He wasn't able to serve in WW2 because of it. So polio saved his life, potentially. I haven't ever heard of any bad results from polio vaccines, although with the new "vaccine" (AKA, treatment, NOT a vaccine) for the calypso virus I think many people have their defenses up (myself included). Traditonally it seems like the majority of vaccines do work, although I got the chicken pox shot, then got shingles as a teen and then got the worst case of chicken pox my doctor had ever seen at 18.....so who knows! One thing is for sure the medical field appears to be more concerned about vaccines and less concerned about their content. "Here's a treatment that will make you live forever!" - "It's broken glass covered in antifreeze and live scorpions?" - "psht! just put it into your system!"

Abortal factents and various metals are commonplace among vaccines, the second is a carrier I believe and the first, immoral. Just pure immoral.

I for one am glad they gave polio shots back then and am glad they still have them. Thats some nasty crap to have to live with your whole life from childhood like many have. I think I was trusting my school rules more than a Dr at the time and getting vaxxed all the time.... I should send them a thank you note, lol

Polio vaccines were one of the best things to happen. I can barely remember that something went wrong the first time and it had to be readministered. Everyone lined up at fire co.'s and schools to get it. Sugar cube? No one was allowed in public schools without it for decades. Or the smallpox vaccine. I do remember seeing people suffering from it that got it pre-vaccine.

I cannot remember as I was young of course, but was being immunized a requirement back then or did you just slip by and nobody cared? Public school? I remember being in long lines in school for various shots. I do remember consent forms from parents. But the mandatory part I cannot remember. And of course it wasnt as politically correct back then either.

Polio is contagious, my older brother had it around age 4, about 1945. He wound up with a 4" curvature of the spine. I was happy to take it, the vaccine pretty much did away with it in countries that got with the program.

That's because the polio vaccine was an actual vaccine. Not something that isn't a vaccine by the original definition of "vaccine", and that hasn't worked in lab tests in the 20 years since the process was invented. :roll:

Polio like every other virus follows a bell curve of infection. By the time the vaccines were introduced, Polio was already on its way out. Were the vaccines useful ? Maybe, but knowing how it spreads is the most useful tool in fighting a virus.
Don't swim in a river that has *censored* in it is the best advice. Unless of course you're George Carlin.
